Now I know there will be many who question why the folks I am about to write about even trusted anyone to send the amount of money to that they did, but the truth of the matter is this, this was a very detailed and elaborate con game that was perpetrated on them. And I'm sure that there are other folks out there that have been caught up with this same con game.
It actually started when Bob Garrett came crashing onto the Bigfoot radar scope about a year ago with his fanciful story of finding a campsite ransacked by Bigfoot and that the authorities were trying to shut him down over it. This made him a Bigfoot celebrity for a little while, and because of the monetizing of Sasquatch Chronicles, they embraced and ran with Bob Garrett's story.
Because of Sasquatch Chronicles, they perpetuated Bob as this great Bigfoot researcher down in Texas and even began promoting a cross-over Bigfoot Expedition program down in the Big Thicket.
To this, I think that Sasquatch Chronicles is implicit in helping Bob Garrett reaching out to more victims. Whether Sasquatch Chronicles is complicit in the con game or not, remains to be seen or proven either way.
(Updated information: Sasquatch Chronicles is actually owned and trademarked by a media company, it's being used to generate revenue. See this link for the confirmation on who owns the brand. https://trademarks.justia.com/868/55/sasquatch-86855624.html .)
A company was set up in Texas called The Big Thicket Watch Guide Service, LLC on January 16, 2016. This gave them even more credibility in the eyes of those they were advertising too.
They began advertising paid expeditions to the Big Thicket, with no guarantees of a sighting, but guarantees of hearing vocalizations.
A husband and wife decided they wanted to go on one of this expeditions, and paid to attend the expeditions. They were instructed to send the money by PayPal to Robert Garrett, which PayPal says was collected by Robert Garrett.
Shortly after the money was collected, Bob Garrett suddenly claimed that the Feds had showed up at one of their expedition camps and shut down the entire operation.
The husband and wife began contacting Bob and others involved to get their money refunded. What happened now was a series of run arounds, finger pointing and outright no return calls by those who were running the Big Thicket Watch Guide service.
To this date, several people associated with this entire affair have dropped off Facebook, and have not returned messages left for them. The husband and wife have been advised by a lawyer to file charges against all those involved.
Now I am working with another researcher to uncover more information related to this, but I am also asked for help from the Coalition and Hoaxers Exposed 2.0 members to help us find more information to help this couple get their money back.
We also would like to find others who were conned out of their money by this same crew.
You will find attached all the emails and text messages from the couple to those involved with the couple's names blacked out to protect them from ridicule and give them some anonymity.
So if you folks have any further information, please let me know so we can help these folks get their money back, or some other resolution.
